Mitchell and Ness hit a jackpot with their every jersey for 100.00. I went on the website and spent an hour looking at every team. Very few "average" sizes that most men wear are still available. There are many xxxlarge available-for the extra large men out there. There is a Philly jersey from 1938 that is yellow.

I definitely agree...what a great deal for us historical baseball fans. I could not pass this up and had to order this one. You can't go wrong with the 1938/39 World's Fair patch and then some...

That's a sharp looking uniform. If I were to get a Yankee uniform I would get Mantle's # 7. The Cardinals with Maris's name was tempting.

I know what you mean...I literally had to do a coin flip to get the DiMaggio or the Mantle. If they keep this $100 special I may end up with both <crossing fingers>. At first I wanted a Babe Ruth but he wasn't available. Yeah, that Cardinals Maris jersey was sweet...I was on this website for about an hour before I made the purchase...cool stuff!

Mitchell and Ness has the 1939 World's Fair patch wrong. But you don't have to take my word for it. Look at these pictures and be the judge. I've got nothing against their jerseys, but if you are gonna pay $100 up to $300, they can be as accurate as possible. But their version of the patch looks similar but not exactly accurate.

...The stock from Netflix continues to fall and they have no one to blame but themselves. The only thing these people succeeded in doing was to upset their customers so much that they turned on them as one. Every once in awhile the voice of the consumer is loud and clear. This time it could cost Netflix their company.

...If you needed yet another reason not to live in Alaska, here it is. A recent storm has prevented the residents of the little town of Nome to receive the fuel they require and they are facing the possibility of $9 a gallon gas. If it isn't bad enough they have to live in that hellhole now they have to fork over this much for fuel.

... Casey Anthony (remember her?) was the most searched for person on the internet in 2011. For almost anyone else that wouldn't be so bad but she's too busy to notice because she's still hiding away somewhere from her <ahem> adoring public.

...The hiring of Bobby Valentine as manager of the Boston Red Sox this week overshadowed all other baseball news from the past seven days. Naturally I don't wish him any luck at all, but I just wonder what Dustin Pedroia really thinks of this hiring because he's been acting like he is in charge for years now.

...How long now until the Red Sox are favored to win the division now that Valentine is on board? And if you don't think the Red Sox were covered a lot by ESPN in the past, I can just imagine how bad it is going to be next year when one of the ex-employees is running the show over there. Forget about baseball news because now it's going to be the nightly Red Sox report - only this time it will be a sixty minute show.

...The one thing that gets me about Valentine is that every single time you see him he has that same grin on his face like he saying I just got away with something and you don't know what it is.

...Bernie Williams' name is on the Hall of Fame ballots for the first time. Don't hold your breath, ok Bernie?

...If you were Albert Pujols, would you seriously consider going to the Chicago Cubs?

...Mindy McCready and her son were found hiding in a closet by police because she didn't want to give him back to her mother, who is the kid's legal guardian. Maybe the only reason why the boy went along with her initially was that McCready promised him Roger Clemens' autograph.

...I don't believe any of that nonsense about David Ortiz coming to the New York Yankees. And if this does happen I will be numb for days.

...It happened again and this time it was this unlucky 86 year old woman who was pushed around by the TSA people at the airports. Why does it seem that the TSA treats these old folks like quarterbacks and they are the defensive line?

...Remember Pearl Harbor Day on Wednesday the 7th. And on that same day it is HFLR's birthday, so have a great one Hector. You guys at Mvp Caribe always do a great job.

Jays are supposed to be the frontrunners right now to land Prince Fielder. If that happens, I will dance out front of my house in the nude, and post the pics (censored) of course! No way in Hell this is happening.

...Jose Reyes is the problem of the Miami Marlins now because he said the Mets showed "no interest in signing him." Say what you want about the Mets but losing this guy to a division rival most likely isn't going to keep them up at nights. They probably figure by the middle of August with that heat down in Florida, Reyes will shut it down and quit for the rest of the season.

...And with the signing of Mark Buehrle the Marlins should have third place clinched next year.

...Albert Pujols takes himself and his bad attitude to Los Angeles for 250 million dollars for the next ten years. For the Angels sake he had better be 31 years old as he says.

...Hey, I wonder if they can move Pujols' statue that is in St. Louis to Anaheim ? St. Louis doesn't need it anymore.

...I bet that no one in St. Louis will have a hard time getting a table in Pujols' restaurant now. And according to this guy it is a good thing Pujols is gone.

...Maybe Lebron James should give Pujols a call to let him know how things are going to be from now on.

...The happiest guy in this Pujols deal isn't even Pujols himself. It's Prince Fielder. Can you all imagine what that guy is going to want just to have him sign his name on a contract?

...Enough of Pujols already. He got more attention in here than he deserved.

...Now that Manny wants to be re-instated I am curious to know how soon he gives Bobby Valentine a call?

...You got to feel bad for Virginia Tech. This week another nut decided to use that university to shoot people for no apparent reason. Virginia Tech is a fine school and always has been but unfortunately now when you first hear the name of the school you associate it with people like this.

...Surfing has to be one of the hardest things in the world to do. I can't even do it on the Playstation.

...You can tell it is a changing world when kids who are waiting in line to see Santa bring their tablets along with him to show him what they want online, pictures and all.

...Grease was on TV the other night. That remains the only musical I can watch all the way through without having a need to grab the remote.

...Lindsay Lohan posed for Playboy? She must have squeezed that in between court dates.

Is that because you have to wait until the last scene of the movie to see Olivia Newton-John in that skin-tight outfit? :)

...This week the Red Sox signed infielder Nick Punto to a two year contract. Punto has played in the big leagues for eleven years and during all that time has done nothing worthwhile to talk about. That being said, he'll probably hit .400 against the Yankees.

...It is just baseball's luck to have something like the Ryan Braun steroid incident ruin their image once again especially after the way the season ended and what happened in the post season. All that is erased right now. The September run of the Rays, the Rangers winning the American League and the Cardinals winning an exciting seven game series all takes a back seat to this news. Spring training is only a few months away. This is what is going to be talked about until then. Not baseball. The winter just got longer.

...Can you imagine how worse this would be for the sport had Milwaukee won the National League pennant and gone on to beat the Rangers in the Series with Braun winning the World Series MVP? The proverbial &@*% would have hit the proverbial fan.

...One thing that I noticed right away after the Angels signed Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson on the same day was that no one complained about it. Sure, the subject of how much Pujols was going to be paid was talked about but there was no grumbling about what the Angels did. Now, had the Yankees gone out and done this and signed the same two players for the same amount of money....

...You wouldn't have heard a peep out of me had the Yankees traded Phil Hughes (5-5, 5.79) over the winter meetings.

...Barry Bonds will not be going to jail. Did anyone really expect he would?

...What's Kobe Bryant doing messing around on his wife for? She's stunning and she's got a brain in her head. What the hell does he want, a Kardashian?

...While that name is brought up in here, I really can not feel too bad for Kris Humphries, Kim's ex. After all he did marry her and on the wedding night he did <ahem> her. Not exactly hazardous duty if you know what I mean. :p

...Overheard while standing in line at the post office the other day: the lady ahead of me bought a book of the "forever" stamps. She asked the clerk how long they last for.

...Plaxico Burress became an avid reader during his stay in prison and since his release he has continued to do so, stating that reading books is something that gives him peace. I feel the same way Plaxico but I didn't need to shoot myself in the leg to find that out.

...It has been years since I read a Christmas story like this that really gives you an idea of what this holiday used to mean before the retailers started shoving it down our throats beginning in September. People from all over the country have been anonymously paying other people's KMart layaway accounts just so those people are able to have a good Christmas. It is remarkable. And this was done without a clever ad campaign or TV commercial behind it. When it comes from within you don't need any fancy words.

...I've owned my Amazon Kindle for quite some time now and I am absolutely satisfied with it. But it still does not explain why I still prefer to have a book in my hand when I'm reading.

...It sure was nice to see that Barefoot Bandit SOB get sentenced to more than seven years in prison this week. And if he knows what is best for him he'd better erase that grin on his face before he gets there before someone named Bubba steps up and does the job for him.

...One week to go. Thank God.

...Finally the big day is here and now we all can relax. No more Christmas commercials telling you what to buy. No more Christmas movies. No more Rudolph and Frosty and the Miser Brothers. All done! That is, until next year when it begins all over again.

...The best part about Christmas is the songs sung at Christmas mass. Walmart and Target and everyone else still haven't found a way to ruin that yet.

...I'm lucky that my wife didn't get me anything from Best Buy because chances are I would have never got it. Seems as if a lot of people got their orders canceled at the last minute with no explanation at all. Game on Santa? I don't think so. He showed them who's boss.

...Thanks to the Oakland Raiders for giving me an early Christmas present yesterday.

...The Texas Rangers found out they had 51.7 million dollars lying around and since they had all their Christmas shopping done they decided to throw it at the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters just for the right to talk to pitcher Yu Darvish. Now if they happen to sign him they'll have to come up with close to 100 million more.

...I'd have loved for the Yankees to get Gio Gonzalez from Oakland but the Athletics would have demanded the entire Yankee farm system. Instead, they allowed Washington to fleece them as the Nationals unloaded four pieces of driftwood to Oakland.

...You got to like the holiday spirit of the Minnesota Twins. They made American League hitters happy by signing pitcher Jason Marquis to a one year contract. National League hitters pounded him for twelve years. Now the AL is going to get their chance.

...There was nobody more surprised to learn about the death of Jon Bon Jovi than Jon Bon Jovi himself. Then again, if you read this on Twitter it just has to true.

...All I could think of after reading the article about some guy winning a Lamborghini and then wrecking it after owning it a few hours is that I was glad he didn't win a house or else it would have burned to the ground.

...I miss baseball as much as anyone but it sure is nice not having to listen to Michael Kay talk or the disciples of Derek Jeter going on and on about how great their hero is.

...The Atlanta Braves must have nothing better to do this off season then fight with the Walt Disney company about the name of their newest movie. Clearly this is more important to them instead of trying to beat the Phillies and not choking at the end of the season, again.

...The movie trailer of The Hobbit makes me wish 2012 would fly by.

...I still enjoy playing All Star Baseball on the original X Box. Even though it is a few years old I loved the games that Acclaim Sports made. Too bad they went bankrupt because they really put together some good games. Those guys were head and shoulders above 2K Sports and yet 2K is still around despite the lack of quality in their games.

...Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba hit an umpire right in the kisser with his palm in a recent Venezuelan League game. I don't know what made this guy so mad. He struck out on a low pitch. It happens. And it certainly wasn't the umpire's fault. Who knows, maybe Torrealba is still upset about losing the World Series. This guy's a classless hothead and I'm anxious to hear his explanation as to why he did this. No matter what he says, he should be thrown out of the winter league.

Here's the video


...Enjoy your Christmas everyone!

Y4L, Merry Christmas to you and your family and to everyone else here. Glad that the commercialization of Christmas will be over, however I do enjoy the Christmas services at my church. I have not yet seen the trailer for the Hobbit, but I have heard that it is a true blow you away trailer.
After hearing your words about the All Star Baseball series, it made me want to fire up my old PS2 with All Star Baseball 2k3. I'll have to do it after church this morning. It was a series that was underappreciated by many fans, but I always looked forward to it. The only sport that I think 2k ever nailed was football with NFL 2k5. I still have updated rosters for it, as Madden has gone downhill in my opinion.
Well, it is the end of December, and so that means only a few months till spring training. Now that I live in Florida, I plan on going to a few spring training games. I live near Tampa, so I have quite a few different locales to go to to catch a game. I can hardly wait. I hope that my Pirates do good this year. Even if not, I will still root for them. Love the Pirates, always have, and can't ever see myself not rooting for them.
Anyhow, I have rambled long enough. Merry Christmas everyone!

...Happy New Year everyone. I hope this year is safe and healthy for all of you here on this website and for your families too.

...As per tradition, I watched the ball drop at Times Square and again I was glad not to be there. I can not imagine standing outside for that long of a time in one place freezing and waiting for midnight to get here.

...No matter how nice it looks when that ball drops, it can't compare to what Sydney, Australia does every year to welcome the New Year. Those Aussies really know how to put on a show.

...Besides, I know my luck. I never would have got to kiss Jenny McCarthy.

...Hey, guess what? Yorvit Torrealba expressed his "sincere apologies" for what he did and he now regrets his actions and blah blah blah. What is this? Do these players have a form letter that they read from after they have done something stupid? How many times have we heard the same apology -maybe in different words- but all in all the same? What the hell does Torealba care that he is suspended from the Venezuelan league for the rest of this year and next year? It's not going to affect him in the American League where he still is going to make his millions.

...Ok, I know that January is not even an hour old yet as I post this and that I'm getting way too ahead of myself but the fact remains that next month is February and that means spring training and all the wonderful things we associate with that.

...Yes, I am impatient.

...If you have heard enough about Tim Tebow during this NFL season you are not alone. Now this guy is having a beer named after him. The catchy name? Tebrew. Makes you really want to go out and get one, doesn't it?

...Sinead O'Connor didn't waste any time. After only 18 days of marriage, she decided to call it quits. And we all laughed when Kim Kardashian only lasted 72 days. I don't get it. 18 days?? You can keep a bag of salad in your refrigerator longer than this marriage lasted.

...The purge out in Oakland continues and this time it's the Red Sox who benefit, of course. The Sox were able to steal reliever Andrew Bailey away from the Athletics for three players that the Red Sox probably didn't want in the first place. Is there anyone else left on Oakland's roster that is worth trading for?

...I don't know about any other Yankee fan out there but you have to be concerned with how much they are standing pat this off season in the trade and free agent market. There's no way you can be confident with the starting pitching that they have going into the upcoming season.

...And signing washed up 37 year old Hideki Okajima doesn't count.

...Verizon tried to pull a fast one on their customers by trying to stiff them with a two dollar charge for every payment they made over their phone or online with their credit or debit cards. Imagine having their customers conduct business over their phones instead of sending text messages to each other! This two dollar fee got their consumers in such a clamor that they quickly dropped the idea. Makes me wonder what they have up their sleeve next to bilk their customers.

Happy new year to you. At least you get to see a giant electrical ball being dropped every year. Over here we watch the fire dept. toss a midget covered in christmas lights off of the roof of a 5-story building and into a giant net.

Oakland will trade Suzuki, Balfour, and Fuentes before Spring training I think.

It wasnt appropriate by any means for Torrealba to attack an umpire, but I still thought it was funny.

Since when are the Yankees not spending money? They cant even sign that Japanese player they won the negotiating bid for. :facepalm:

With all this Tim Tebow hooplah, I am further convinced that he is the Antichrist that bible thumpers and doomsday prophets are warning us about. When his pitiful NFL career ends in a couple years, we shall see.

Sinead O'Connor is yet another celebrity that cannot decide her sexual orientation because she is more attracted to her own image in the mirror.

What Verizon was trying to do is similar to Bank of America: charge a fee for using their debit card. Gee thanks, no other banks are doing that.

I'm anxious for Spring Training to begin as well. Of course, the anxiousness usually starts the day after the World Series ends! My early sleeper pick is Kansas City.

It wasn't an oversight. I'm superstitious. I didn't want to mention them because for the first time in years they have a chance to make the playoffs. I'll be tuned in at 4 pm today to root them on though.
